Leuterit Viking Sword (ca. 750)

One of the most famous Viking swords was found on the bed of the River Witham in eastern England. You can see it and many other notable swords in the British Museum today, but this Viking sword Leutlrit (sometimes spelled Leuterit) is one of a kind.


Except for the lettering in the fuller (which is believed to be the name of the swordsmith), our Viking Leutlrit Sword is an exact replica and is one of the best available to buy in the UK. It has the characteristic features of a Wheeler-Oakeshott type VI, such as the curved crossguard and the riveted, five-lobed pommel, and both are decorated in a copper-colored lozenge pattern. Its dimensions and weight are almost exactly the same as the original. The double-edged blade has a wide fuller which makes it light yet flexible and the slightly tapered, wooden grip has silvery studs to make it very manageable. Once you have had this Viking Leutlrit Sword in your hand, you won't want to put it down. It comes with its own scabbard.
